as the investigations continue, this might come up again. we'll have to see. >> but steve, in another sort of related area, john kerry originally was floated secretary of state. now it looks like he may be potentially a candidate for secretary of defense. >> this is a great segue. >> john kerry is not involved. >> but he's a person who had sex in the past. so there's your segue. >> we're asking about john kerry. maybe there's an issue with leon panetta has to stay around for a few months because tough replace petraeus and all shuffling that has to go around. but eventually panetta is going to lead as defense secretary. but john kerry would be first in line to succeed him. what i find interesting is if it's true, it means the white house is not buying into the idea you can't pick john kerry because it opens up the senate seat and scott brown wins the senate seat. >> do you like kerry at defense as an idea? >> he's as qualified as anybody if he wants that. i just feel like if you want him for that job and you think he's a good match, don't be scared off by this guy. >> 100% agree. >> if he's the right
waddling in tomorrow, there's aa promise of a con sill to her tone. steve, can you fall off a sloef? >> it feels really good, exactly. >> they start to tackle the nation's debt. there's fear of sbimgtsment cuts and, of course, tax reform. the president is packing a he schedule with high profile meetings to try and get something done. tomorrow labor leaders, wednesday business leaders and corporate executives, and friday congress aal leaders from both sides of the aisle. we start with rob cox at reuters breaking news. rob, do you expect compromise or continuing to fight? >> well, i do expect compromise, but remember, the fiscal cliff is one artificial construct cooked up by the congress and the president to basically get us to think about a much bigger problem, which is what you pointed out. entitlement reform and tax reform and all the big issues and putting america into the accounts. the problem is the president -- i mean, you know, frankly has all the leverage here. so he doesn't need to compromise that much to get half, if not three-quarters of what he wants. >> i think the presi
mean, to your point, i read it entirely differently from steve. i read it as, i'm probably not going to appoint her -- >> fighting for her. >> i'll get a defense out automatically so that when i don't we don't have to relitigate this again and everyone knows where i stand on my friend susan rice. but you and i talked about this earli earlier, governor and made a bet with a colleague. >> not for $10,000. >> not. >> way more than that. >> you and i agreed against another colleague that if susan rice was put up for nomination we could think of a couple democrats who would oppose her nomination. >> right. >> why would obama waste capital on susan rice when he's got so many other things to worry about right now? >> s.e. makes a good point. the president has to use capital. we need republican cooperation to get anything done in this country, important things. >> right. >> why rip off a scab and an open sore trying to build that cooperation? that's on the one hand. on the other hand, the president i believe, deeply believes that this is unfair but i think his first goal was to stand by susa
but 300 is a locality. >> i think steve said something about a gradual slope ned of a cliff. the cataclysmic that he was talking about. initially those kinds of tax increases don't kick in until much later. they're now talking about pushing back spend cuts as well. look, peter is right. we're looking at fiscal contraction next year, and it gets back to the first set of comments. that's not what you want to see about an economy growing around 2% with a highly elevated employment rate. let's not forget about the jobs part of this, and also let's not forget that temporary spending on similtimulus measures is nott causes the problems. the permanent stuff hurts us. >> it's not a apocalypse if we go over, a slope. >> i don't aagree wigree with t. >> i'll take it from jared. good. >> i think this is a fairly clear -- think of tax -- taxes would go up to 2013 and they don't show in your tax bill until you fill your taxes out in 2014. treasury doesn't have to change. they don't have to change the way. >> withholding? >> they don't have to change it. >> we want the positive news. we h
, kelly, this is steve kornacki. part of this story, then, involves the potential nomination of susan rice, the u.n. amambassador, to replace hillary clinton at the state democratic. it's susan rice who a lot of republicans have decided lied to the public. they allege was executing some kind of intentional cover-up plot by the administration. i don't know how that would work or what the cover-up would be. be that as it may, that's what republicans are saying. you have john mccain and lindsey graham both saying if her nomination is put forward, they will filibuster it. are there any indications that that would become an official republican party position, because if the republicans unite, they would have the 40 votes to kill it by filibuster. >> there is a lot of opposition among republicans to a potential susan rice nomination. people are not actively talking about filibuster, although that's the obvious presumption if you talk about members trying to block something like this. in some was they are saying that she was schoezen bied white house to be the public face in the early days after
